Talking Replacing the bed

Hey everybody in a month or so will be looking at replacing my beat up bed on my 95 f250 and was wondering if anyone local has the tools/know how and space to give me a hand. Don't like going into this blind but needs to be done. Anyone around Redding let me know, hell ill go as far as Sac if need be. Just need a hand possibly someone with a trailer too lol. Sorry to be asking so much. Will throw in beer and dinner too. Thanks in advance FTE NorCal Chapter.

oh man. i think i've got the torx bit big enough for the job.. i've also got the motivation.. what i can't offer is the space. here in oakland, if you're vehicle looks abandoned? forget it. you've just offered all sorts of parts to the locals... thats the problem i'm having working on mine in my parking spot..

Oh well I'm stuck cause my landlord will evict me if he sees me doing any kind of work on it, even washing it pisses him off. One of the reasons I don't have my 76 anymore he called the city on me.

Well I have the tools and plenty of space but I'm a ways off Red and I cant say that I could trailer you out here...

I'm about 2.5 hours from Redding but if you make it up here we could do it...

I could probably find a spot to do it in Yreka though. Again, not much help with getting the bed there though.

Going to start lurking around Craigslist Yreka for a bed. Still waiting for my check in the mail, fingers crossed it'll be sooner then later.

Not a bad idea. I could probably manage to get a bed from the Medford area too if you want to search up there.
